That's almost the idea: it does generate the stub code and ml/mli
interfaces, but from an "IDL description" of the C code to be
interfaced.  The IDL description looks like a C header file with
additional annotations.  Depending on the C code in question, the
annotations can either be straightforward or quite hard to figure out...
